Kindness Fund

Sometimes, you don’t need a reason to help someone. Everyone experiences kindness at some point in their life. For many people they are looking for opportunities to show a little kindness when good fortune finds them. The Kindness Fund is just for those times. It is a way to give a small donation to provide a lasting impact in the life of a patient and their family.
